According to the National Literacy Trust, Reading has a demonstrable impact on:


Children who enjoy reading are three times more likely to have good mental well-being than children who don’t enjoy it.


The longer children keep an enjoyment of reading going, the greater the benefits are in the classroom.

Life expectancy

Children born into communities with the most serious literacy challenges have some of the lowest life expectancies in England.

So how do you encourage children to read and read for pleasure?

Knowing what children really feel about reading and about themselves as readers can be very difficult in schools today with growing class sizes and increasing demands on educators' contact time.

And yet gaining these insights is a crucial step towards encouraging reading for pleasure and developing lifelong positive attitudes to reading.

This is where Literacy 360 comes in.

What is Literacy 360?

Literacy 360 is a new tool for schools to measure and monitor each child’s individual attitude towards reading throughout Key Stages 2 and 3.

The tool provides valuable insights on how each child view’s their own reading abilities and how they feel about reading for pleasure, enabling educators to gain a deep understanding of each child.

These crucial insights help inform early evidence-based interventions where needed to ensure no child is left behind when it comes to reading and reading for pleasure.
